TLS Announced Winner for International Urban Design Competition of Shanghai Hongqiao Qianwan Area
TLS Landscape Architecture is announced winner for the Urban Design of Shanghai Hongqiao Qianwan Area within six international competing teams. Qianwan is located northwest of Hongqiao District, a city sub-core of Shanghai Masterplan. The competition scope includes overall area of 100 hectares, core urban design area of 20 hectares, central park area of 10 hectares.
Qianwan is located on the Suzhou River, as an interface between the traditional water town culture of the westside and the international modern trend of the eastside. TLS’s concept “Hydro City, Hyper Community” integrates water-oriented city making with international urban lifestyle, to create a new urban fabric that nourish great quality of life. Water and park infiltrate into communities and break up the boundary. Five different water characters merge their features into five featured zones. By uniting headquarters and communities, Qianwan will become a brand-new innovative headquarter community with a balance between life, work, and education. In this way Qianwan will define the landmark of Hongqiao, attract international talents from all over the world, and build a new Shanghai-Style Water City.
